AMD officially launches Polaris Evolved RX 500 series

AMD officially launches Polaris Evolved RX 500 series

It gets interesting when you look at the RX 560, however. For example the Core speeds on the AMD RX 580 have been increased from 1120 MHz (AMD RX 480) to 1257 MHz (AMD RX 580). Though it is based on the same chip, the Radeon RX 570 has four of the CUs disabled in the GPU (32 are active) and has 2048 active shader processors. It also contains the same 8GB of GDDR5 RAM at 8GHz on a 256-bit bus.

As we mentioned, the GPU engine is the same Polaris architecture found in the AMD Radeon RX 400 series, so the feature sets are exactly the same as well.

As noted on the recent benchmark report by WCCFTech, Radeon RX 580 will be available in both 8 GB and 4GB GDDR5 memory variants reportedly both clocking in at 8.0 GHz. This is up from the AMD Radeon RX 480's 150W. It features a 1180MHz boost clock, eight compute units, and 2GB of GDDR5 memory with a 128-bit interface. Radeon RX 500 series GPUs have been further refined with higher clock speeds, improved idle and multi-monitor efficiency, and the fine-grained controls gamers need to fine-tune their hardware. The RX 570, which aims for "maximum" 1080p gaming, will go for around $169, while the slightly slower RX 560 will start at $99. Then the RX 560 and RX 550 - which is a new addition to the usual AMD lineup - to follow at a later date.

Between the additional cores and the higher clocks, the RX 560 should be a strong update to the RX 460.

Just last week we had reported about the leaked specifications and box images of AMD's Radeon 500-series of graphics cards. Though, you'll notice the Radeon RX 570 has one fewer heat-pipe and lacks front and back-plates, so not all Twin Frozr VI coolers are created equal. The RX 570 has also seen a major bump in the base clock speed from 926 MHz to 1168 MHz. These cards all require a single 8-pin power connector. At the moment the AMD RX 580 reference features a Core/Boost frequencies that is higher than most overclocked/aftermarket RX 480 variants.

The Radeon RX 550 is based on a completely new GPU, the Polaris 12. The RX 500 series represents a "re-spin" of RX 400 architecture assuredly. AMD only revealed that the GPU will be clocked at 1183MHz GPU Boost clock. The RX 550 is priced at $79 and will be available on April 20.

The product stack includes Radeon RX-580, RX-570, RX-560 and the new RX-550.

Word has it that the Red Devil will feature 1400+ MHz clocks. The series will range in price from $80 to $280 and AMD boasts it will measure up to Nvidia GTX 1050 and 1060 cards when it comes to performance.

Other than adding support for these new cards, the latest Crimson ReLive 17.4.3 release doesn't seem to offer a whole lot. In fact, virtually all of AMD's board partners are at the ready with custom Radeon RX 500-series cards, so expect a varied array of RX 500-series cards to choose from once they hit store shelves.
